With the system idle, you can change your default outbound line by pressing the desired outbound base button until it flashes green four times. You can also change the default outbound line using the Plantronics Control Panel by going to Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings > Base. Base Subscription Button The headset and base that came in the box are subscribed (connected) to each other. However, if you wish to use a new headset or need to restore subscription to your current headset (base subscription button is red), the units can be subscribed to each other by the following methods. The subscription button is the silver trim with four dots on the front of the base. Automatic secure subscription With your system idle, docking a new headset will automatically subscribe it to the base, making it the primary headset. The base subscription LED will blink green/red during subscription mode and remain green when the new subscription is established. Manual secure subscription With your system idle and your headset docked, double press the subscription button on the base. The subscription light will flash red and green. When the subscription light on the base becomes solid green, the headset and base are subscribed to one another. Manual over-the-air subscription 1 With your system idle and your headset undocked, double press the subscription button on the base. The subscription light will flash green and red. 2 Press the volume up button on the headset for three seconds until the headset LED turns solid white. When the subscription light on the base remains solid green, the headset and base are subscribed to one another. NOTE If the base subscription LED goes solid red, after flashing red/green, the subscription attempt has failed and should be repeated. 18
  19. 19. End Subscription If the base is in subscription mode and you want to stop the base from searching for a headset, press the subscription button again. The subscription light will be solid red for four seconds and then go to its previous state. Disabling Over-the-Air Subscription The Savi system ships with the over-the-air subscription enabled. In a multi-shift environment, you may want to disable this mode of subscription. You can enable/disable over-the-air subscription with the base subscription button or with the Plantronics Control Panel. While your system is idle, hold the subscription button and the PC phone button down simultaneously until the PC phone button LED flashes. It will flash red for 4 seconds when overthe-air subscription has been disabled or green for 4 seconds when enabled. You can also enable/disable over-the-air subscription with the Plantronics Control Panel. Go to Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings > Base > Over-theAir-Subscription.

  21. 21. Daily Use Incoming Calls Answer a Call The easiest way to answer an incoming call from the desk phone, mobile phone, or computer is to press the headset call button when you hear an incoming call. Alternatively, you can answer an incoming call by pressing the base button for the line that is ringing. NOTE If you don't have remote call control through a lifter (HL10) or cable (EHS), manually remove desk phone handset before each call. NOTE Remote answer/end capability for the PC is a software feature and dependent on a compatible softphone. If you do not install the software or don’t have a compatible softphone, you will need to press the headset call button first then answer the call using the softphone application. Visit plantronics.com/software for more information. Answer a Second Incoming Call With Your Headset If you are on a call and a second call comes in from one of the other devices, you can flash (answer) to the second call by pressing the headset volume up button for 1.5 seconds. This will put the first call on hold while answering the incoming call. You can flash to answer multiple incoming calls from the PC, however only one call is supported at any given time on the mobile phone or desk phone. You will need to manage multiple calls on the desk phone or mobile phone on the devices themselves. Answer a Call While Listening to Music or Audio If you are listening to music on a supported media player and a call comes in, the base will pause the music when you answer your call and resume the music when your call is over. Plantronics software must be installed for this feature to function. The Action to Media Player settings are defined in the preference tab of the Plantronics Control Panel. Answer a Call with Your Mobile Phone If you answer an incoming mobile call using the answer button on the mobile phone, the audio will remain in the phone. If you answer an incoming call using the headset or base, the audio will be in the headset. Reject a Mobile Call When you receive an incoming mobile phone call, the mobile button on the base will flash green. To reject the call, hold the base mobile button down for 3 seconds. Outgoing Calls Place a desk phone call 1 While wearing your headset, short press the base desk phone button. 21
  22. 22. NOTE If you don't have remote call control through a lifter (HL10) or cable (EHS), manually remove desk phone handset before each call. 2 Dial a call using your desk phone. 3 To end the call, press the headset call button and hang up the handset. Alternatively, you can place an outgoing call by pressing your headset call control button, then dialing from your desk phone if the deskphone is the default line. 1 Place a mobile phone call While wearing your headset, short press the base mobile button. NOTE If you place the mobile phone call without pressing the base mobile button first, the audio will stay on the mobile phone. If you would like to transfer the audio to your headset, short press the mobile base button. 2 Dial a call from your mobile phone. 3 End the call by pressing the headset call control button. Hands-free dialing To enable hands-free dialing, install the Plantronics software. Once installed, go to Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings > Base and activate Initiate Mobile voice commands. For hands-free dialing, initiate the mobile call from the base by pressing the base mobile button. Your mobile phone will prompt you for voice commands. Alternatively, you can dial a number from your mobile phone and then press the base mobile button to move the audio to the headset. Place a Softphone Call 1 While wearing your headset, short press the base computer button. 2 Dial a call from your computer softphone. 3 End the call by pressing the headset call control button. 22
  23. 23. Softphone Compatibility Remote call answer/end from the headset is available for compatible softphones with no additional steps by the user except Skype™. For a list of compatible softphones visit plantronics.com/software . For Skype support, follow the steps below. 1 Skype will display the following message during the install of Plantronics Unified Runtime Engine “PlantronicsURE.exe wants to use Skype”. Choose “Allow Access” to connect. You can also check Savi W740 Skype connection status by going to Skype and checking the 2 Tools > Options > Advanced > Advanced Settings > ”Manage Other Programs Access” setting. Multi-Phone Status Mobile Phone and Headset Audio Multi-Phone Status (MPS) is supported for Microsoft Lync/Office Communicator and Skype. When a call is placed or received on your deskphone or mobile phone that is paired to a Plantronics Bluetooth headset, your presence in Microsoft Lync/Office Communicator and Skype will be automatically updated to reflect a busy status. When your call is terminated, your presence will return to its previous state. If you answer an incoming mobile call using the answer button on the mobile phone, the audio will remain in the phone. If you answer an incoming call using the headset or base, the audio will be in the headset. If the mobile phone audio is in the mobile phone, you can move the audio to the headset by short pressing the base mobile button when the LED is off. To move the mobile phone audio from the headset back to the mobile phone, hold the base mobile button for 3 seconds until the solid green LED turns off. The audio will be pushed back to the mobile phone. Combine Audio From Any Two Lines or Channels Conference Up to Three Additional Headsets You can combine the audio of any two devices by simultaneously holding the base buttons of any two of the three base buttons until the LEDs become solid green. This is useful as a mini-teleconference call. While on a call you can subscribe up to three additional headsets to your base for conferencing. Join a conference call 1 While the base has an active link, place the guest headset into primary user’s charge cradle (this connects the headset to the base). When the base subscription light stops flashing green and yellow and remains yellow, the primary headset/user will hear a tone indicating a guest wishes to join the call. 2 Press the primary user’s call button to accept the guest headset within ten seconds. Otherwise the request is terminated and the guest will hear an error tone in their headset. NOTE To connect a guest headset that is of different variety than the primary headset, short press the base subscription button while the base has an active link. Next, press the guest headset volume up button until the indicator light turns on. When the base subscription LED stops flashing green and yellow and remains solid yellow, the request to join will be heard in the primary user’s headset and the primary user will have to press their call button within 10 seconds to accept the guest . Exit a conference call Guests headsets can remain as guests through multiple calls. 23
  24. 24. To remove a guest headset, press the guest headset’s call button or dock the primary user’s headset in the charge cradle. A single tone in the master headset will be heard as each guest leaves the call. View guest headsets As you add headsets to the base, an additional headset icon will appear in the Plantronics Control Panel screen with a number from 1 to 3 indicating the number of additional headset subscribed to the base. The first headset is the primary user’s headset and the number inside the next headset is the number of guest headsets subscribed to the base. The following example shows one primary headset with 2 guest headsets conferenced in. 24
  25. 25. Advanced Use User preferences and device settings that affect the performance of your headset can be changed using the Plantronics Control Panel. Install Plantronics Software Plantronics Control panel To access the Plantronics Control Panel, load Plantronics software by visiting plantronics.com/ software and click on download button.

  27. 27. Base Settings Range High up to 350 ft. Medium up to 150 ft. Low up to 50 ft. To change the range with the base see Setting the Range. Audio Bandwidth for Desk phone and PC Wideband audio delivers heightened speech clarity and life-like fidelity. However, wideband audio consumes more battery power and has more stringent access criteria which reduces the number of systems that can be deployed in a small area. All PCs support wideband audio but your desk phone must support wideband audio to experience the benefit of selecting “wideband” for that device. When switching between narrowband and wideband audio, you must re-establish the audio link for the changes to take effect. Bluetooth Enabled This feature disables/enables use of the Bluetooth interface to the mobile phone. The Bluetooth interface to the mobile phone can also be disabled/enabled manually by pressing the subscription and base mobile phone button until the base mobile phone LED flashes. When the base mobile phone button LED flashes red four times, Bluetooth is disabled and when it flashes green four times, it is enabled.

This information will only be used by Plantronics to improve the quality of our future software and hardware products. Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync Dial-tone Enabled If this feature is selected, when a PC radio link is established, Microsoft Office Communicator/ Lync will assume the user is trying to place a VoIP call and provide a dial tone. If this feature is not selected, when a PC radio link is established, Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync will sit idle. Audio Sensing Enabled Audio Sensing is a special feature supported by Plantronics wireless devices that can detect an audio signal at the USB port and automatically establish a PC radio link between the Base and wireless headset without the user having to press the PC call button. If the parameter “Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync Dial-tone Enabled” is selected, then every time a PC radio link is established the Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync dial tone will be heard. However, the user may have pressed the PC call button to listen to music, etc., and does not want to hear the dial-tone. In this case, if the user selects the “Audio Sensing Enabled” parameter, the radio link will be established automatically when any PC audio is detected at the USB port, thus eliminating the need for the user to press the PC call button.
